Green Park Elementary School 4

The teachers and staff are amazing, friendly and warm, very caring and welcoming to the children while actively seeking positve parental involvement. Everyone knows my son by name, the wonderful principal has even called when he was absent for 3 days to check on him, because they cared about him and missed him. They work hard to make school a positive memorable experience. My son absolutely loved it here. Unfortunately we have moved but are considering going back just for this school. He has developed a love of learning. Its a great balance of academics, nurture, socialization and family involvement. There is a real sense of community fostered here.

I would NOT send your child here.This school has be come trash. Some of the teachers dont even stop the fights. I know many parents that have took their child out of this school.Their are some good teachers still here but not that many.Green Park needs to be under review.

Green park is the best elementary school, ever. As a student, parent, grandparent and substitute teacher I have experienced many schools. Although, Green Park has gone through some changes with principals and rule changes, the students are still well behaved and well educated. The teachers are enthusiastic and dedicated.

Doesn't have an open door policy! My son is in Kindergarten in Mrs. Harrison's class.She is a caring,fun teacher that showed my son the personal attention he needed when he had discipline problems which are now resolved, I have never seen the principal.The office staff seems to have an attitude. They all have stupid looks on thier faces when i come in the office like 'what do you want?' Today I wanted to bring doughnuts because it was my sons turn to bring snack. I wasn't allowed to bring it to his class even though I checked in to get a visitor pass. Urine smell in the halls.A staff member once told my son he was irritating.He's been reading&counting to 100 since he was 4& the class has just caught up to him. No kindergarten acceleration. He is teaching me sign language though!

The school is really suffering this year. MAny of the teachers were transferred especially special education teachers. Students are suffering because of this. My child now has 26 students in her kindergarten class. THis is way too many. The new principal, Fran Rush, doesn't seem to be a very good leader.

Green Park was a amazing school when Mr. Vic was principal. He was always approachable with any concerns you may have. My son went there for 4 years , my duaghter has gone there for 2 years and I have another that will start there next year. I am a very involoved parent, I will help anyway I can. The new Principal is not a very accessable person. She has to control everything at every single moment. She has made the school a very uncomfortable place. Every day a policy changes. I just hope that things settled down and she realizes that she has a wonderful staff. Other than that the teachers are great except for the horrible mistake that Borderlee made by hiring 2 bad teachers in the last 2 years.

I absoutely love this school for my daughter. She adapted really well. Mrs. Mailhos is a wonderful teacher and I've only known her for 2 weeks!-Keep up the Good Work.
